Sunday, May 20 -- LA Darfur Observance Day at FAME

On Sunday, May 20, at FAME Church, join a host of concerned citizens in remembering the victims of the Darfur genocide and participate as we Raise Awareness. Take Action Now. Stop the Genocide.

  • The first genocide of the 21st century in the Darfur region of Sudan is now in its fifth year.
  • At least 400,000 people have been killed; more than 2.5 million civilians have fled their homes and live in displacement camps.
  • More than 3.5 million men, women, and children are completely reliant on international aid for survival.
  • The brutal and calculated government campaign of starvation, rape, and mass slaughter must be stopped!

VIP Reception to follow; RSVP by May 17th to 310.282.8080 ext. 331 or email
Reception will be across the street at the Allen House.

Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa will lead a broad city-wide coalition of community leaders to bring attention to the genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan.
An inaugural initiative will be announced by Mayor Villaraigosa as the keynote speaker along with well known community leaders including clergy, entertainment industry stars, and eyewitnesses who have traveled to Darfur.

The program will include an interfaith choir performance, video and photographic images documenting the situation in Darfur, and speeches advocating action.
